A Penny From Heaven

Pennies from heaven...I have always picked up pennies I have found outside, though I was completely unaware of the this poem:
I found a penny today
just laying on the ground,
But it's not just a penny
this little coin I've found.
Found pennies come from heaven
That's what my Grandpa told me,
he said angels toss them down
Oh, how I loved that story.
He said when an angel misses you
they toss a penny down,
sometimes just to cheer you up
to make a smile out of your frown.
So don't pass by that penny
when you're feeling blue,
it may be a penny from heaven
that an angel has tossed down to you!

I computer-generated the poem and used it on the inside of my card. The little penny pocket is created with acetate and dual duty thread. I included the poem on the inside of my card. I used CardPatterns Sketch 108 for inspiration.

I am anxious to see how you are inspired by pennies from heaven. Link your heavenly creations at Betty Bee's Buzz :)

We always pick up pennies too. If I see one, I pick it up and read "In God We Trust" and am reminded, I trust in God for all things!
I love the card, and the poem!
